The measurement of the field radiated from an antenna placed above a finite ground plane experiences the effects of the field scattered by the edges of the ground plane. A new numerical method to remove these effects from measured data is presented here. It resorts to the image theorem and can be used for both near-field and far-field measurements. A simple and effective algorithm has been developed to apply that method to fields described by means of spherical wave expansion. A numerical validation shows the effectiveness of the method.

Abstract

The measurement of the field radiated from an antenna placed above a finite ground plane experiences the effects of the field scattered by the edges of the ground plane. A new numerical method to remove these effects from measured data is presented here. It resorts to the image theorem and can be used for both near-field and far-field measurements. A simple and effective algorithm has been developed to apply that method to fields described by means of spherical wave expansion. A numerical validation shows the effectiveness of the method.
